and commemorate the sacrifices of their predecessors."
from The World War One Centennial Commission Act, January 14, 2013

Across the nation in the years after World War One, state and local parks were named in honor of Americans who made significant contributions to the war effort. Many of these parks have statuary and other memorials related to World War One.  To add a park to this page, send an email to the webmaster with the relevant information. (See disclaimer.)

World War 1 Memorial Plaque 

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 283 in Pacific Palisades, CA worked to restore The World War I Memorial Plaque originally placed at the Santa Monica Memorial Open Air Theater in 1921. Along with the WWII memorial plaque that was added in 1946, the WWI plaque was cleaned and its surface restored. Both plaques had their mountings replaced with corrosion-controlling bolts and their mounting wall surfaces stabilized. A rededication ceremony was held on July 3, 2017 when the restored plaques were gifted back to the Santa Monica Unified School District. The ceremony was attended by local veteran groups, high school students, and descendants of several of those memorialized.
